    7 Tips For Natural Skin Care

    Posted by Ada Hersko on January 16, 2013 0 Comments

    Skin care, once thought of as expensive and time-consuming, can actually be a surprisingly easy, effective boost to your health and confidence. There are several ways to take care of your skin, including diet, exercise, cosmetics, and the use of natural skincare products. Simple products and choices can elongate your skin’s youthful appearance and prevent future problems. Good skin care can simple. From proper cleansing to using the right skincare solutions, here are a few healthy tips:


    1. Hydration

    The appearance of our skin is affected by our digestion. Many common skin conditions like rosacea and psoriasis have possible root causes in digestive issues. Regular daily hydration – specifically water - is the most effective way to combat problems in digestion. Water cleans out the cells in your body, removing the bacteria and waste that infects your skin. Drinking the recommended eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day will speed the process of cell-cleansing and will lead to better skin cell content.

    2. Fiber

    The best source for regulating digestion is dietary fiber. While many people lack fiber in their normal diet, it is one key factor that can help your digestive system work properly and make your skin look better. Men and women should consume an average of 30 grams of fiber per day for their digestive system to operate optimally. The average person only consumes about a third of that.

    An easy way to increase fiber in your diet is to add snacks like seeds, nuts, and dried fruits. Food sources such as oats, flaxseed, peas, beans, apples, carrots and citrus fruits also boost your fiber and power up your digestive system.

    3. Exercise

    Exercising helps blood circulation and creates perspiration which allows you to sweat, secreting excess waste that sets in your skin. Exercising tightens skin tone and helps the texture of the epidermis. The circulation restores the natural glow that your skin possesses which is usually dulled by the sedentary skin. Exercising will have you feeling more energetic and confident, helping esteem and eliminating stress.

    4. Avoid Sun Over-Exposure

    The UV rays can be very damaging to your skin; it is important to protect yourself from the sun if you are outdoors for long periods of time. The sun is the leading cause of wrinkles, age spots, dry skin, and skin cancer. The sun is the hottest in the middle of the day and when the rays are most damaging.

    Sunscreen is a must: apply sunscreen before you go outside so it has time to seep into the skin providing you with the most protection. Wear sunglasses when it’s bright out -- the UV rays are one of the top reasons for impaired vision. Over time, the sun damages the eyes even when not looking at the sun.

    5. Exfoliation

    Exfoliating is a process that should be performed daily to ensure healthy, more youthful-looking natural skin. The first step is choosing the proper product for your skin. There are many different cosmetics but there are some that contain ingredients that can be harmful to the very goal you are trying to achieve.

    Using natural skin care products is a good way to ensure safe, healthy results. Natural sea salts and dead-sea salts are great for exfoliating the body and natural sugar scrubs are a little less irritating for the face. Some products contain hemp seed oil, and avocado, apricot, jojoba or Vitamin E oils as added natural emollients. When cleaning and exfoliating skin use warm, not hot, water.

    Water that is too hot will extract the moisture from your skin leaving it rough and less healthy than before. Use a circular motion when washing your skin because the rounded movement opens the pores allowing you to clean hidden dirt. When drying your skin pat it, do not wipe it. Patting will allow some of the remaining water to seep into your body and help with the moisturizer you apply following the cleansing.

    6. Moisturizing

    Daily use of moisturizing natural skincare products is one of the easiest and most important ways to care for your skin. When bathing or showering, many people find ordinary soaps drying to the skin. Shower gels infused with skincare oils such as hemp seed, vitamin e, or natural vegetable-based glycerins soften as they clean. Try to avoid products that use either Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Sodium Laureth Sulfate, as studies have shown damaging and even toxic effects with long-term use.

    Whether it be an all-natural after-bath or shower skin oil spray, a moisturizing skin lotion or skin butter, daily skin moisturizing will offer protection from the elements, anti-aging properties, and will give skin a feel-good healthy glow.

    7. Natural Ingredients

    When looking at skincare products try to shop for those containing natural oils and botanical extracts. Popular moisturizing skin care ingredients include hemp seed oil, argan oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil, apricot oil, coconut oil, vitamin e, and shea butter. It should be noted that not all synthetic chemicals are necessarily bad or unsafe.

    Many naturally-based skin care products require a few chemical compounds to work effectively, maintain stability, and to preserve shelf-life. However, one should try to avoid skin care products that contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Parabens, Phthalates, Propylene Glycol, Mineral Oil, or artificial dyes.

    Conclusion: Natural skin care is a key part in benefiting your outer appearance. Apply these simple tips and you will soon have smoother, brighter skin that leave you feeling healthier and more confident!

    10 Steps to a Perfectly Clean Face

    Posted by Ada Hersko on January 06, 2013 0 Comments

    Did you know that you have a great deal of control over the texture, clarity, suppleness and long-term health of facial skin just based on how and how often you cleanse? Whether you’re young or old, man or woman, you can do your skin a big favor by cleansing correctly.

    Cleansing is arguably the most important part of your basic skincare routine. Proper cleansing gets rid of old surface skin cells, dirt and dust, grime, make-up and bacteria, and keeps skin pores free of clogs and able to breathe freely.

    Cleansing also aids circulation and prepares the skin to receive topically applied nutrients and lipids.


    Here are some tips for proper facial cleansing from the 5,000-year-old healing tradition of Ayurveda:

    1. Cleanse twice a day, no more. Unless you have exposed your skin to excessive dust, grime or pollution, twice-a-day cleansing is more than adequate for any skin type. Cleansing too often strips your skin of precious natural oils. Not cleansing regularly, particularly before you retire for the night, may lead to build-up and eruptions.

    2. Choose a cleanser that is appropriate for your skin type. Do not use soap on facial skin: it can be too harsh and drying and damage skin over time. A too-rich cleanser can clog pores, while a too-dry cleanser can irritate the skin. A cleanser for dry skin should contain nourishing herbs and oils. One for oily skin should include herbs that balance oil production and support clarity. Sensitive skin benefits from an ultra-gentle, fragrance-free, non-irritating cleanser.

    Traditional ayurvedic cleansers are made fresh with natural ingredients such as ground oats, lentils or chickpeas, complexion enhancing or clarifying herbs such as turmeric, Amalaki, Neem and sandalwood, emollients such as milk, cream yogurt or honey, and floral or citrus waters for pure healing fragrance. You can make your own by mixing the dry ingredients to last a week or two and blending the mix with milk or cream right before use. Otherwise, look for a natural cleanser that’s gentle and fortified with skin-friendly herbs.

    3. Always cleanse with tepid water. Hot water dries and damages skin over time, and cold water won’t dissolve and take away embedded dirt and grime as well as lukewarm water.

    4. If you use sponges or washcloths, make sure they are clean and soft. They are not necessary for effective cleansing: your fingertips can do just as good a job.

    5. Wash your hands thoroughly before you cleanse your face, or you will be working dirt into facial skin. Use a headband to secure hair away from the face.

    6. Start by splashing tepid water on your face and neck.

    7. Apply the cleanser with your fingertips or a soft sponge, using gentle circular massaging strokes and moving upward on the face and neck. Do not scrub too much…gentle massaging strokes are enough to help improve circulation as well as loosen grime and old surface skin cells. Too much scrubbing will stretch skin and irritate it, especially the delicate skin around the eyes.

    8. Rinse with lots of tepid water. Don’t forget to rinse off cleanser from the neck and hairline. Cleanser residue can clog pores and attract dirt.

    9. Gently blot off excess water with a soft towel. Do not scrub dry or drag towel along skin.

    10. Follow immediately with a water-based toner and a moisturizer appropriate for your skin type to seal in surface moisture and offer nourishment when skin is receptive.
